I'd argue that it does make a difference. If you queue up a SET_RESPONSE DMX_START_ADDRESS when the DMX address is changed, then the controller only knows that the DMX address was set. It then has to issue a GET DMX_START_ADDRESS or GET_DEVICE_INFO to find out what the new address is.

If you queue a GET_RESPONSE DMX_START_ADDRESS, the queued message contains the new address and the controller does not need to do any followup work to find out what the new address is.
